Ilorin indigenes fault UNILORIN VC’s appointment
Written by Olarotimi Oshin on September 21, 2022
Scores of Ilorin indigenes under the aegis of Ilorin Association of Friends, yesterday faulted the modus operandi of appointing the Vice Chancellor-designate of the University of Ilorin (UNILORIN), Prof. Wahab Egbewole.
The Governing Council of the institution about two weeks ago announced Egbewole, a professor of law and jurisprudence, as the vice chancellor-designate.
The tenure of the current Vice Chancellor, Prof Sulyman Abdulkareem, will expire on October 15.
The Nation reports that the Coordinator of the association, Alhaji Bashiru Aliyu, said they called the news conference not to bore Nigerians with the rhetoric or sentiment that an Ilorin man must always emerge as the vice chancellor of the University of Ilorin or to attack any personality but to register their grievances on the sordid process that produced the least qualified as the new VC-designate against the established standard and convention of the university.
They called on relevant organs of the government and those who have responsibility to oversee the affairs of the university to look into the activities of the council and the entire process that produced the new VC-designate of the University of Ilorin.
